Great show Live
I worked at U of Houston Program Council and we produced this show with Barry Fey or Bill Graham, the Allman Bros. were a co -bill on show but Barry Oakley was killed on 11-11-72 so Allman Bros. canceled so we were gonna cancel the show but Grateful Dead said no way we'll play their set too . it was an awesome time Jerry Garcia met us the morning of first show and didn't like it that people would be sitting behind the stage since Hofeinz Pavillion is in the round we built a plywood wall and painted it black and set it on the back of stage ,pipe and drape was born that day and we were treated by Jerry to his infamous anvil briefcase

let the good times rock n roll
Unbelievable second set--it has everything! Thanks so much for doin this.
Listenin to first set:...Remembering my old house and next door neighbor, Golden Valley Chief of Police. This one day he chattin with me over the fence about how him and some buds were goin to the show; I asked if they were going undercover orwhat; he laughed and said no, it was for some R & R with some Marines buddies. Then he says, I've always liked your grass, I say well you don't want to cut it too short, ya know. What the heck.
This same neighbor said he believed gardening was man's domain in caveman days, so I said for sure, just like lions the women did the hunting. I miss my old pal. Never saw him at a show, Thank God.
Anyway, this show is spectacular!!!
Thank very much.
Good night, good night, good night...

good sound, thanks for the work involved
OK show, I appreciate the work that was put into sharing. Saying that, I didn't find it to be an inspired show. Makes me wish there were more shows on this day in history to give me another choice as I already listened to the '66 show.
BTW, I didn't hear a "Bid You Goodnight" riff, to my ears it is just the instrumental ending to GDTRFB.
This is an extremely tight show.
China Rider, Playin' and Stella are incredible.
BTW and Big Railroad are very fine along with the Dark Star which is full on.
very much appreciated

Dark star crashes brings Weather Report prelude
Main Highlight of show for me is
Dark Star> Weather Prelude > 1/2 step
This 'Dark Star' can be scary at points so the 'Weather' had to be a welcome relief.
Half Step is also very sweet especially so late in the set coming out of a meltdown jam.
Also can't go wrong with 20 minutes plus of
Paying in the Band.
These are some of my good secondary highlights
Box of Rain- vocals with Phil and Donna
Tomorrow-vocals with Jerry and Donna
During-'I know you rider' vocals are hot! Phil?
Speaking of Phil- his bass work is nice in the mix at many points during this evening.
Note: dwelling for any length in this time period
can make it challenging to listen anything after
the early 70's because the band is really together and it is just a matter of which version of a song is hotter or which combination of tunes does it for you.
There are very few musical mistakes in this era by the Good ol' Grateful Dead.
There is a little
'We Bid you Goodnight' instrumental
at the end of GDTRFB.
